I’m now reading “A Mandarin and the Making of Public Policy“, Reflections by Ngiam Tong Dow, and I can’t put it down. Its extremely refreshing so far, getting a peek into how the Administrative service works, the role they play in making policies that affect us.
If I can try and put it in words…..They are the engine of the policy making body in Singapore. The government is the public facing body. Hmmm…..this requires me some rethink in my understanding of the entire scheme of things concerning politics in Singapore.
